I have no way of painting a verbal picture of what you will see when you reach the top. I will say that I never heard anybody complain. It's not an easy walk to the top but all it takes is persistence.

I wasn't sure if I could make it to the top but there were stops along the way. Also, you have an assigned time to walk up so it isn't too crowded. There are windows as you walk up and a nice breeze.

It became clear why they make you remove even a small pacsac for the climb. It is a tight squeeze climbing up there, but fully worth the view on a sunny day, what a delight.

You can't help but look up as you approach the Piazza. It is a sudden pause as you discover the Piazza and the tower is there. It is a something you want to see and spend time taking it all in.

It is a tough climb to the very top of the tower but well worth it for the views of the piazza below yow, the basilica and the surrounding countryside

You can walk in here for free, but definitely worth paying to climb the Tower. The architecture here, as in many places in Siena, was exquisite!
